This delightful Japanese Catmint has many merits. Both the foliage and the flowers are fragrant. It blooms the first year from seed, unlike most perennials. It is upright and nicely branched, rather than sprawling. Make it a centerpiece of your containers and sunny-to-partly-shaded garden areas!
Panther Dark Blue walked off with the Bronze Medal at Holland’s prestigious Plantarium competition in 2015. The attractive little plant is much more compact than other catmint species, standing just 20 cm high and 25 cm wide. The foliage is bright green, glossy, and toothed, releasing a strong, heavenly fragrance from spring through fall. Profuse bloomer! Medium to dark blue, these tubular flowers reach up to 5 cm long, held in nice clusters on the top of the plant. The blossoms are fragrant, and they begin in early summer and go right through into early fall. You’ll be amazed by the flower power of this petite plant.
